1999 Volkswagen Golf Hatchback GL 2dr Hatchback (midyear)


Review

Worst radio reception I've every had in a car. A lot of little things went wrong (fuses blowing out, engine warning light going on) and a big thing, air conditioner broke down at 60,000 miles.


Worst Features

Ironically golf clubs cannot fit in trunk of a Golf hatchback!

Review

You must be a true volkswagen lover to
appreciate the smooth ride, great
mileage, "too cool" exterior, and ample
space this car provides! This was my
1st car and I still love it like as if
I just brought it yesterday. It has
never been in the shop for repairs!
With the exception of a loose knob to
adjust the passenger seat - my Golf is
still delivering outstanding
reliability and quality service.


Best Features

The ample space which fits 5 passengers comfortably. My husband and I are both over 6 ft tall and the ride is extremly comfortable for us both.


Worst Features

No improvement needed!

Review

When you see the car you thing oh that
car is so little. But you can fit five
people pretty comforably in it and the
back seat can lay down for when you
have something big to haul or for a
drive in movie. Not only that but it's
really easy to put down the seats. The
only thing i wish is that my cup
holders were bigger. I get about 22-25
mpg in the city! I haven't got to test
out the traveling mpg but i'm thinking
about 8 to 10 more miles to the gallon.


Best Features

Fold down seats, locking e brake


Worst Features

bigger cup holders

Review

Great car, always fun to drive. It
maybe a small car but it comes in handy
when you need to fit 5 people in the
car (without any complaints on space)
or when you move from Florida to Texas
and fold down the rear seats and load
it up with all your stuff. Another
plus is it's great 30 mpg that i
regularly get. No matter how hard I
drive it just keeps going!!!


Best Features

Flat folding rear seats


Worst Features

Would like to see a little more cutting edge and rally racing styling with some beefier engines!!

Review

This car is awful. It's been in the shop
constantly for so many problems I can't even
remember them all. Some problems I just
leave rather than fix because I'm tired of
putting money into this car. Don't buy
Volkswagon.
